Role: Fellow and Tutor; Associate Professor in Probability

Prof Paul Chleboun


I did my PhD in the Warwick Mathematics Institute with Stefan Grosskinsky, after which I did a post-doc in Rome III with Fabio Martinelli.

I then returned to Warwick where I held a Fellowship in the Mathematics Institute funded by the Warwick Institute of Advanced Study, before joining Oxford in September 2016.

Research interests

I am interested in applied probability theory, mathematical physics and scientific computing. More specifically, my research focus is on Markov processes called interacting particle systems, and in particular their dynamics (such as mixing times, relaxation toward equilibrium and metastability).


I teach probability in college tutorials and lecture Part B Applied Probability for the Department.
